I had a bunch of different names scribbled in notebooks:

Sam Hall (Evangelist)
Chanticleer
Nicky January
Momus

I think "Momus" came from Aesop's Fables, but maybe it was mentioned in Kierkegaard or something (I was reading a lot of Kierkegaard at that point: Either / Or). In consultation with Mike Alway of el Records I settled on Momus. It had a certain darkness and otherness to it, a classical feel (Greece and Rome have always fascinated me), and the vowel sound was a bit like "Bowie", my idol.

My middle name is the most boring name in the world: John.
